Add cryptocurrency micropayments to Skype (XRP and others)
Dear Skype, The age of MicroPayments has come and we need your support. The era of Internet of Value is kocniking at the door. My idea is to implement micropayments in Skype. Allow us to buy SkypeCredits with XRpTipBot , allow us to send micro payments on Skype chat as well.
Please have a look at http://xrptipbot.com/ and its open API https://www.xrptipbot.com/app/api-spec which is pretty easy to implement.
XRPtipBot is now available in 40+ languages. It's available for Twitter / Reddit / Discord / Telegram and recently has been added to Microsoft Outlook please visit http://moneymessage.radynamics.com/moneymessage_www/
What's more it has been now implemented in WooCommerce as well: https://github.com/empatogen/woocommerce-xrp
Why XRP? Here you can find an answer: https://xrpcommunity.blog/xrp-the-digital-asset-with-a-solid-foundation/
What's more Ripple has provided incredibly complete documentation for developers: https://developers.ripple.com/docs.html In order to confirm my words, have a look what the Developer of trustWallet says: https://twitter.com/vikmeup/status/1105509648453398528
Read about XRP ledger: https://developers.ripple.com/xrp-ledger-overview.html
I'm a developer who's familiar with MS products and created several tools for XRPL https://www.davidolliver.com/category/xrpl/ and if I can assist in any way to make it happen, please let me know

Hi. Thanks for sharing this Idea! Cryptocurrency micropayments sounds really cool right :) Like any other leading technology company Microsoft is already testing blockchain.
Although I don’t have any information about cryptocurrency adoption for Skype or any other MS product, please keep continue supporting this Idea. I will share it with our teams :)
Note: I’ve edited the title of this Idea little bit so it fits to cryptocurrencies generally ;)

Please add DGB would be great to use.
This is pretty awesome and XRP definitely is the right choice as it is cheap and quick
Digibyte gets my vote, but XRP would get the job done as well 🙂

Would suggest DigiByte for payments because transaction speed is just a few seconds compared with 8mims for bitcoin
XRP is the best choice. It's decentralised and don't use PoW, so ecofriendly and sustainable in the long term
Digibyte because of its built in smart contact like digi-id is far superior!
XRP is not a crypto currency. It is not mined and can be infinitely created by a central organization. Please do not use it.

DigiByte DGB is the best technology 👍🏾
Big difference to XRP:
Decentralised and Open Source 😳
So what’s better🤔
Bradley Frazer commented
I would love for this to happen, but if I had to pick just one, it would be DigiByte. It is the fastest and most secure UTXO blockchain to date, and better yet, it is fully decentralized with several use-cases such as, Digi-ID, which would work brilliantly with something like Skype.
Add digibyte coin
Emmanuel Gadenne commented
BTC is the only cryptocurrency standard
Riten Wappel commented
XRP is great. But also consider adding DigiByte (fastest UTXO blockchain) and BTC (most widely held and reliable cryptocurrency).
Xrp is the best choice.
XRP + skype = ❤
Владислав Мазурин commented
XRP first, cheap, fast ... growing community.
Now is the time to get involved with XRP.

This move is essential, most likely will expand the Skype customer base.
